The Climate Impacts & Spatial Systems and Queensland Department of
Primary Industries offer monthly Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) and
global Sea Surface Temperature data sets.

The Sea Surface Temperature (SST) data is in map form and covers the
global oceans. This data set begins in 1982. The Southern Oscillation
Index (SOI) data is in graph or text format and begin in 1900.
